there once was a boy I knew
a heart so full of light
in a world only
preaching darkness he held it all inside
the only one true innocent in this
guilty generation
he walked a lonely dirt road with no one to hold and nowhere
to call
home

he walks the streets at night (all alone)
with a cold steel
45 at his side

a little brother,
a worried mother,

a burdened father
says to his son

"no acceptance,
you'll find no acceptance"

oh
courageous one
you're life’s worth so much more
then to be thrown away
for
someone else’s war
and as he pulls the trigger
his humanity, gone forever


and after all these years,
there's still something there

my tortured
friend,
please come home soon,
where you can finally,
rest your weary soul.
